Our Story

Brighton Science, the global leader in surface intelligence.

Brighton Science combines decades of unmatched surface science expertise with precision diagnostic tools and sophisticated software to bring unprecedented visibility and insight to real-life adhesion, manufacturing, product development and supply chain challenges. We’ve worked with hundreds of companies to solve thousands of problems, which lets us pinpoint issues quicker and get to solutions faster.

The Brighton Science story

More than 20 years ago, Brighton Science began as a development lab for plasma polymerized coatings. Through research and development work led by Chief Scientist and Founder Dr. Giles Dillingham, Brighton Science made great strides in the field of material science and adhesives in manufacturing. It was during this time that Brighton Science developed the Surface Analyst, the first hand-held contact angle measurement device used in the development of adhesive bonding for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program. 

As a solutions-focused company, Brighton Science has mastered the ability to ensure adhesion for manufacturers in an ever-growing array of industry applications. We’ve refined how research, design and production affect adhesion to help businesses create adhesion processes that result in quality products. 

Through years of experience, our unparalleled products and our unique approach to fixing adhesion problems, we have helped some of the world’s largest companies build better products and develop reliable adhesion processes.
